Dinner Tonight: May 15, 2020 Savory Mug Cakes

Savory Mug Cakes


One person leaves the table for a minute. The others choose an emotion and act out that feeling until "It" is able to guess the emotion.


What is your most unusual talent? Demonstrate it!

These savory “mug cakes” aren’t really cakes at all — they’re more like individual souffles or omelets in a cup! Use the recipe as a template to customize with your family’s favorite ingredients. Try different vegetables, tiny cubes of cooked meats like ham or sausage, and cheese. These make a great dinner or breakfast when time is tight. And the best part is, kids and adults can each make their own!


  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 egg, scrambled
  • 2 tablespoons pesto, pureed roasted vegetables, shredded cheese or other mix-ins of your choice
  • pinch of salt


  1. In a mug or coffee cup, microwave the butter for 30 seconds.
  2. Stir in the scrambled egg.
  3. Swirl in the pesto. For a variation, try adding a couple of tablespoons of roasted vegetable puree, some shredded cheese, or experiment with finely diced vegetables and cooked meats.
  4. Add a pinch of salt and stir.
  5. Microwave for 1 minute, until the egg is set.
